What is it?

You may not find it hard to look for blueberries as they are often included in so many dishes, but they are actually unique. Blueberries are interestingly the only blue food in existence. Some blueberries though, have a deep purple-black color. The size of the fruit ranges from pea to marble size. You will also find blueberries coated in a whitish-gray covering which serves as the fruit’s protective layer. A native of North America, these cute little blue rounded fruits have so many species concentrated in North America than any other place in the world. There are three main types of blueberries: lowbush, which can also be found in Asia and the Mediterranean, rabbitseye and highbush, which can only be exclusively found in North America. For so many centuries, the only way to enjoy blueberries is to find them in the wild. It was only in the 20th century when scientists were able to unravel the mysteries of cultivating blueberries that commercial growing of this fruit began. Now, this relative of the azalea and rhododendron from the Heath family can now be enjoyed all throughout the year in most continents. There are also products like blueberry powder and dried blueberries. This berry also climbed up the ladder and placed second of the most commonly eaten berries in the US next to strawberries.

What makes our blueberry powder different?

So many blueberry powder products out there are claiming to be the best without backing it up with concrete evidence. We will tell you what makes our blueberry powder different, so you’d know that when you buy from us, you will surely get more than your money’s worth.
Our blueberry bushes are cultivated in Europe where the conditions are optimal for growing this fruit. This means the blueberries can thrive and bear fruits attaining the highest quality and nutritional content possible.
The soil where our blueberries grow is rich with nutrients so we don’t need to use any chemicals or synthetic fertilisers to aid them in their growth. No pesticides, herbicides or fungicides were also utilised at any point throughout their cultivation. We have soil certification and the approval of EU organic certification bodies to back up this claim.
Our blueberries are raw—we don’t add anything to our blueberry before, during and after production. They are also air-dried under 42 degrees Celsius to make sure no nutrient is lost in the process. This way, our customers will be able to maximize the benefits that only raw blueberries could bring.
And since we don’t rush to pick our blueberries—not immediately as soon as they turn blue—our powder has a naturally sweet, tangy and full taste. That’s the result of prime blueberries; of how we took care of our fruits from beginning to end. Enjoy in blueberry powder recipes like oatmeals, waffles, yoghurt, smoothies, salads, baked goods, and other recipes today!
